The guards approached a parked pick-up truck shortly after 1 a.m. in the parking lot of the complex located on James H. McGee Blvd. and police said the male driver fled the scene as the guards advanced towards the vehicle. They questioned a female passenger after he ran off but the suspect returned with a gun and opened up fire on the guards striking both.
Both guards, employed by Moonlight Security, were taken to Miami Valley Hospital where one remains in critical condition. The other, who was wearing a protective vest, is in stable condition.
The suspect fled the scene after the shooting and police are looking for a 21-year-old suspect Christopher Brown described as black, 5-foot-8-inches tall, 145 pounds and last seen wearing a light-colored jacket and dark pants.
Police believe the man and woman might have been the same couple involved in another incident about a week ago at the Summit Square apartments in which the woman in that pickup was shot in the arm. That incident is believed to have centered around a drug deal.
